Are You Planning to Succeed?–Visualization

Visualization is a method used by athletes, actors, singers, and business leaders to help achieve their visions. Athletes use visualization to see themselves scoring the winning goal, basket, or run before actually doing it. Actors use this process of mental rehearsing to help them bring life to scripts by seeing, feeling, hearing, and touching their scenes. With visualization these performers see themselves successfully accomplishing a task.

Another way to help bring our visions to life is by constructing a vision board. A vision board is a collection of images and other visual aids reminding us of what we want. Visual cues generally contain cut out pictures or key words from magazines and newspapers. Vision boards are often displayed where we can routinely view them.
